I've been using the Luna Interactive Projection Camera in my room for about 3 weeks and I LOVE the interactive ability of this lightweight product! It connects into my computer which is connected into my projector and allows the entire class to see what I'm manipulating much like the flexcam I was using. However, this little darling can take pictures and video a lesson while you're teaching....talk about the ability to revisit a lesson! The ability to turn on the light means I can darken the room and the kids can still see the manipulative, book, or page projected on the screen!
As we were busy filling out the Tree Map and drawing the llamas, I was able to take a couple of photos to keep on hand for those students that didn't quite finish with the group or were absent.
They were able to use the photos from the Luna to help them complete their projects!
And I've got a visual for next year if we get around to doing a llama project again :)
Students were able to share the stories they created using the Luna Interactive Projection Camera. After they wrote their stories about Llamas, they were able to bring them up under the Luna and record their reading of the story they created. I can now add these recordings to the final iMovie project or just share a treat with a parent.
If you're a TBA follower, you may have had the opportunity to read my post on the card game I use with my groups to practice double digit subtraction without regrouping. I was able to use the Luna to record the way we play the game on video so that I can share the directions without having to write them down for those interested in playing the game...my parents can also easily understand how to play the game with their children at home...
I created a worksheet to go along with the game so the kids could practice their skills on paper.
